Let’s talk stocking stuffer ideas!

It’s that fun time of the year, when we are thinking up all kinds of little things to show love to and share joy with the people in our lives through gifts. I love doing gift guides, since there are always more fun gift ideas out there than what I can give or need to find for the people in my life. I’ve done guides for Classy Gentlemen, for Ladies, for Grandma, and for Kids. This year, it’s time to cover stocking stuffers– one of my favorites!

  • A great paring knifeStocking Stuffer Ideas– paring knife
  • A drink frother (Jeff put one in my stocking last year, and I love it!)
  • A microplane– listen: if you (or your favorite cook) don’t have one yet, it’s time.
  • Smoked Salt or a little tin of Maldon Sea Salt (And for serious salt fans, here’s a cool little box to keep multiple kinds on hand.)
  • This real key chain bottle of Sriracha is fun!Stocking Stuffer Ideas– exotic spicesStocking Stuffer Ideas– smoked salt
  • Smoked Cumin– trust me on this one. My brother sent me some one year, and I have felt lost without it whenever I run out. I don’t have a link for this one, and would recommend checking your local spice shop or gourmet food store.
  • A tiny box of Spanish Saffron, or a pretty tin of Pimentón Ahumado, smoked paprika
  • To continue on a theme of some of my favorite Spanish gourmet food items, definitely olive oil fried marcona almonds! I bought tubs of these for my family this year, and they were a huge hit when I brought them back at Thanksgiving. A little packet will be such a wonderful treat, and are great with a good sherry like amontillado or manzanilla. I think it would be fun to put together a little set of a small bottle of sherry, almonds, olives, and some cured meats to enjoy together.

Stocking Stuffers for Everyone

There are some little gifts that just work for everyone.

  • One of my favorites is a coupon for a special activity, or a voucher that can be turned in for something specific at any time.
  • Fun or silly underwear or socks are great for anyone in the family
  • Gift certificates to a favorite spot or shop
  • Special foods or treats
  • Printed photos from something fun or special that happened this year (Non-digital photos are such a rare thing these days, that just going through the trouble of getting them printed is a sweet present!)
  • A little card with some heart-felt comments on what good things you have enjoyed about your gift recipient this year.

I hope you find some of these ideas fun and helpful! I sure had fun writing this up, and had to make myself stop adding items. Vicarious shopping is just as fun as the real thing!
